Berry Blossom Nugget Purse

One package of 12 X 12 Berry Blossoms Designer Series  Paper package is all I've used for the many projects I've shown over the past few weeks.  Each time I reach for this pack of Designer Series Paper, I get a little tickle of joy.  Here's my latest project using Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper... the venerable nugget purse.  We all know that this cute purse design has been around forever.  However, when I saw Mary Fish's nugget purse samples  I knew I would finally create my own samples using Berry Blossoms DSP. Here's what my nugget purses look like with one of the cards I created in an earlier post.

To see more projects with Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper:
 - Fun Flowers and Berry Blossoms
 - More Berry Blossoms cards projects
 - Berry Blossom flowers

I used 5" of Ruffled Calypso Coral ribbon for the purse handles, attached with Red Sticky Strip tape.  Most nugget purses are made using the 1/4" grosgrain for the handles.  I changed the dimensions slightly to accommodate the 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon. 

Cutting Dimensions:  My measurements accommodate the 3/8" wide ribbon.  If you use 1/4 ribbon, you may wish to change your dimensions.
  • Cardstock:  1-1/2 X 4-3/4"
  • Berry Blossoms Designer Series Paper(DSP):   1-1/4 X 4-3/4" Adhere DSP to cardstock.
  • Score along the long side at 1-3/16", 2-3/16", 3-1/2, and 3-7/8"
  •    Tip:  Since The new Simply Scored Scoring Tool only scores at 1/8" increments, more your paper 1/16" in from the edge before scoring the first two scores and use the 1-1/4 and 2-1/4" score channels, then move your paper back to the edge of the scoring tool surface and created your 3-1/2 and 3-7/8 scores
  • Create sharp creases with your Bone Folder along the score lines.
  • Adhere Red Sticky Strip to the 3/8" wide area
  • Add the Ruffled Ribbon before closing the nuggey purse.
  • Hold the nugget purse closed using a small brad stuck through two small flowers.  I used one of the flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch and one from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
